Kimchi – One Of The World’s Top 5 Healthiest Foods

Traditional Kimchi is a spicy, fermented condiment.

This staple Korean food is made from cabbage, garlic, salt and other seasonings and vinegar and  fermented for 3-4 months.

The long fermentation allows the probiotics to  grow and multiply, and the nutrients in the vegetables to be “pre-digested”  and made more bio-available.

There are 187 historic and current varieties  of kimchi.

Kimchi is Korea’s best known food, the pride of Korea – a cultural icon and  national treasure. It is served at almost every meal.

The average  consumption of kimchi is around 40 kilos per person per year.

Recognized as one of the world’s healthiest foods, kimchi is loaded with  key vitamins, kimchi contains healthy bacteria that aid digestion, plus it  is low calorie and high fibre.

It is more than just a spicy food. It is renowned for its restorative and  rejuvenation properties and it scientifically proven to eliminate  unfriendly bacteria and boost immunity.

In 2003 an outbreak of what became known as SARS occurred in Asia, while  other countries were badly affected, Korea was virtually untouched.

Also,  the Korean chickens infected with the H5N1 (avian flu) virus, recovered  after eating food which contained the same good bacteria found in kimchi.

Subsequent studies (on 200 chickens) by Korea Food Research Institute  supported the theory that it enhanced immunity.

In fact several studies have shown that kimchi probiotics protect against  even the worst viruses and bacteria.

The “good” bacteria in kimchi produce  bacteriocins – which are harmless to the body and the rest of your “good” bacteria, but are toxic to the “bad” bacteria.

Kimchi also enhances the  body’s immune defences with its effects on the body’s immune system – the  Peyer’s patches

(or aggregated lymphoid nodules which form a part of the  body’s immune system) – inside your gut.


Enhancing your immune system is crucial to your well being. The single  biggest risk factor for deadly infection or disease is a weakened immune  system.

Research (Kor J. Microbiol, Biotechnol (2008) 36(2), 106-114) also shows  that kimchi probiotics fights ulcer-causing Helicobacter pylori bacteria.

Further, kimchi produces beneficial SCFA’s (short chain fatty acids) which  are reported to inhibit the development of invasive colon cancers.

This is  supported by numerous clinical findings, including some published in the  Journal of Nutrition (2001: 131:3041S-3046S, and 2002: 132, 1012-1017).

Kimchi is so highly regarded in Korea that price increases in 2010, which  followed poor weather conditions for harvesting the cabbage, were  considered a national tragedy.

However, you don’t have to worry about  eating 40 kilos of kimchi each year or the price!

The easy way to benefit from the goodness of kimchi is to consume easy to  take concentrated kimchi extract.

Oriyen concentrated kimchi extract  contains both the friendly bacteria and the health boosting fermented  kimchi,

providing the positive synergistic effects for killing “bad”  bacteria and enhancing immunity. 

It’s more than just probiotics!

Oriyen Korean Kimchi Concentrate Powder combines the goodness of natural  nutrients in fermented kimchi with the health-promoting benefits of kimchi  probiotics.

Probiotics like kimchi help support weight management…promote a healthy  gut…maintain vim and vigor…and aid in the reduction of yeast growth.

What are probiotics – and why do you need them?

As defined by word-renowned experts, probiotics are “live organisms which,  when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host  organism.”

This healthy bacteria helps support and maintain the necessary  balance with unhealthy bacteria in the intestines.

Probiotics are consumed in fermented foods or dietary supplements with  active live cultures.

Lactic acid bacteria (LAB) and bifidobacteria are the  most common microbes used in probiotics.

When you take antibiotics, you’re killing the “good” bacteria along with  the “bad”.

The human body needs billions of probiotic bacteria to function  effectively, and ideally we have large stores of them.

However, due to poor  diet, lifestyles, and overuse of medications, these “friendly” bacteria are  destroyed. Replenishing probiotics is essential to:

  • Restore the healthy flora in your gut…
  • Produce B vitamins your body needs…
  • Kill or inhibit yeast growth…
  • Offset the negative effects of antibiotics…

Oriyen Korean Kimchi Concentrated Powder gives you the nutritional  equivalent of over FOUR POUNDS of fermented kimchi – all in a single  sachet.

That’s a powerful little pack of nutrition!

One serving = the goodness of over 4Ibs of fermented kimchi.  Plus, it’s so quick and easy. No refrigeration is needed for this handy sachet.

Just pour it into your mouth. No muss, no fuss. 

Patented “Triple Coating” to protect the live Kimchi probiotics from harsh actions of stomach acid and bile salt,

allowing them a safe passage to the  large intestines to exert their benefits…

Patented processing method to isolate viable Kimchi probiotics and Kimchi  nutrients…
